Biggest Oracle Investment Plan in India

CEO Safra Catz Unveils Plans for Largest Oracle Campus Outside of the U.S. in Bengaluru

One of the biggest investment plan for any company in India, Oracle unveiled a massive, state-of-the-art campus centered in Bengaluru, 9 incubation centers throughout India, and an initiative to train more than half a million students each year to develop computer science skills. If that is not enough, today, Oracle CEO Safra Catz met with Prime Minister of India Shri Narendra Modi apprised about the whole initiative.

Spread over 2.8-million-square-feet, the cutting-edge campus will be Oracle’s largest outside of its headquarters in Redwood Shores, California. Expected to be the epicentre of its operations throughout India, more than 11,000 employees from diverse fields, including engineering, sales and marketing, global support, finance and consulting, will converge at the high-tech site.

Tailored for Oracle’s growing millennial workforce, the buildings will include collaboration centers, vibrant workstations, and large spaces to foster creativity and teamwork. In addition, employees can take advantage of entertainment lounges, gyms, a basketball court, open green spaces, and an array of cafes and eateries. The design will focus on reducing Oracle’s carbon footprint and reinforce the company’s commitment to the environment.
Similarly, contributing to India’s “Start-up India” and “Make in India” initiatives, Oracle’s nine incubation centers will support entrepreneurship and development of innovative start-ups by providing software, tools, and training to new software and technology companies utilizing Java and the Oracle platform. These centers will be located in Bengaluru, Chennai, Gurgaon, Hyderabad, Mumbai, Nodia, Pune, Trivandrum and Vijayawada.

And, in support of the prime minister’s “Digital India” and “Skill India” programs, Oracle Academy plans to engage with local schools and universities to train more than half a million students throughout India in computer science each year.

Oracle Academy currently partners with more than 1,700 educational institutions in India, to advance computer science education and drive knowledge, innovation, skills development, and diversity in technology fields. Through these collaborations, more than 3,000 India-based teachers were trained in Java and database last year alone. With today’s announcement, Oracle Academy aims to expand its partnerships to another 1,000 institutions in India, with a goal of reaching 500,000 students annually.

“Oracle has been in India for over 25 years and during that time we’ve grown our investments tremendously,” said Catz. “In fact, India now represents our second largest employee base outside of the United States, with nearly 40,000 current employees and an additional 2,000 current job openings. We are investing over $400 million USD in Bengaluru, opening 9 incubation centers, and training half a million students each year during this expansion phase to support India’s tremendous growth. We ‘Make in India’ for the rest of the world.”

“I’m particularly excited about the incubation centers which will house substantial software and technology capabilities, tools, and training to help launch new technology startups built utilizing Java and the Oracle platform,” added Catz.
